I have followed all the instructions and not sure if I have all the hotfixes and updates. But I have reseached this issue and have not been able to get this resolved without asking a question directly. I have created the vDisk and attached it to the device. I have used http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX121028. Stuck at Boot Target to vDisk because target decise freezes at the black screen with the progress bar. Never gets to the XP log screen. When I look at the Provisioning server the vDisk is locked but the Device has not booted. I have to force reboot the device after changing boot option to hard drive vs network. Can anyone help me? I am not getting any errors anywher.

No errors in the Provisioning Server's logs?

lynchc24, is this still an issue?  I went through the instructions on the link you provided and I didn't see anything wrong.  The steps were a bit different from the XenDT Admin Guide, which I tend to follow.  For example, your link has the VDA being installed last.  I include it when I first build the golden image.

amichaell, thanks for responding. My first golden image attempt was from the XenDT. In researching I discovered the XenAppPrep. Is this needed (sysprep) to make the golden image? To answer your 1st question, no errors in Provisioning Server logs. Thanks in advance.

You don't need XenAppPrep.  Try the instructions in the attached file.  This is a document I'm putting together (not yet complete as you'll see) mainly for myself to facilitate learning.  I seem to learn better by writing up documentation.  The instructions aren't detailed in that I don't go in to every excruciating detail, though I believe it will be enough for you to get by.  It really shouldn't be that much different from what you are doing now, though maybe there is some detail in there that will get you up and running.
